Samsung Genio Touch review

 Review: October 2009  
 

Last updated April 2010

Rating:

In a nutshell: The Samsung Genio is an entry-level touchscreen phone very similar to the Tocco Lite, but with a more basic camera and a smaller screen.

 

Samsung's best-selling phone is currently the Tocco Lite. But now, here comes the Genio Touch, a curvier version of the Tocco Lite, with rounded corners and a more futuristic look. The Genio has a more basic spec than the Tocco Lite, but is about the same price.

The Genio is very much like the Tocco Lite, and has the same kind of touchscreen interface, but with a slightly smaller screen. The camera isn't as good either, but the Genio does have cool widgets that give easy access to Facebook, MySpace and Twitter. There's also a full screen web browser, a music player that supports most popular music formats and an FM radio too. With a memory card slot, you can easily store thousands of music tracks, and the Genio is equipped with Bluetooth so you can easily share stuff with your friends. Initially the price of the Genio Touch was too high, but it has already fallen to around £60, and at this price we'd say it was a bargain and could easily become the mobile of choice for teens.

Samsung Genio Touch features include:

  • 2 megapixel camera with 2x digital zoom
  • Video recording (QVGA 15fps)
  • Display: TFT, 262K colours, 240 x 320 pixels (2.8 inches)
  • Music player (MP3/AAC/AAC+/AAC++/WMA formats)
  • Stereo FM radio
  • 64-voice polyphonic ringtones / MP3 ringtones
  • Messaging: SMS, MMS, email
  • Integrated handsfree speakerphone
  • Personal organiser functions
  • Memory: 50MB plus MicroSD memory card slot (up to 8GB)
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth 2.1
  • WAP 2.0, GPRS Class 10, EDGE
  • Quadband GSM
  • Size: 103 x 57 x 12.4 mm
  • Weight: TBC

The genio touch has the BEST battery life I have ever seen in a phone! It is so easy to use and the camera is brilliant. I am now, after two or three years, ooking into a new phone. I can't seem to find a phone with a battery as good as this one :(

I've had this phone for almost 2 years now. I've dropped it many times and the condition is still fine. Also the picture editing is good and the widgets are fun, as well as the battery life being good (my phone is on all day and I use it probably an hour a day for texting, photos etc. and I only have to charge it every 4 days, although it could last a good 6 days).
However the games are not brilliant and the touch screen is playing up a lot now- probably due to the fact that it is 2 years old. Also the social networking and internet is poor and the memory space is not brilliant.
As a result I would reccomend buying a more updated phone, especially a smartphone which would have much better capabilities.

It's a good phone if you're prone to breaking phones like me. I Have had mine for 3 years (the longest I've had a phone without breaking it) I've dropped it quite a few times and it hasn't broken yet, no cracks on the screen only a few scratches on the case. The only thing i would say about it though is that the screen can sometimes be either too sensitive or not sensitive enough and if you want music on it I would suggest getting a memory card because it's not the best phone for storing music. Overall it's a good phone :)

I've had this phone for ages, and I will say, its pretty good. I got it in 2009, but dropped it and cracked the screen, but I still kept it as a back up phone, as it still worked (luckily!). I brought a new phone (Samsung Tocco Lite) but lost it. So I went back to the Samsung Genio, and I'm getting on alright with it. It looks nice, but it is boring and I cant get internet or anything. However, this phone is good, considering its cracked and it was turned off for about a year. But sometimes it freezes too, but thats probably because its quite old. Its an alright phone.

This phone isn't really all the rage now but I just thought I would let people know that I have had it for 2 years now (normally phones last me 6 months) It has been down the toilet twice and I've dropped it countless amounts of times. I've opted to buy a new phone as I have had this one for so long, but however it will be staying in its box until I break me new one. Deffo a half decent phone!

Had this phone for 6 months now. Bought it in a semi-rush as needed a low cost phone and I knew someone who had this and thought it was good. Initially I went for it because of the orange back, I love orange! But it's turned out to be a really good phone. My first touch screen and it's quite good considering how cheap it was. I've tried other, more expensive touchscreens and I can honestly say it isn't far behind them. I don't use the internet on my phone, but for texting and calls it's been great. There are some negative points, such as not being able to easily access in call functions; but these are not big issues. I really would recommend this phone if you need a decent functional phone.

Well.. i think ive had this phone about a year now.. Positives - Easy to use, fast loading your stuff, the built in apps are useful, looks good, wide range of changeable backing covers available. Negatives - Screen occasionally freezes and the only way to unfreeze is to take the battery out then restart it, it randomly presses buttons on the virtual keyboard when no one is near it, poor speaker quality, whilst in phone calls it decides to cut off and end the call itself, compared to my old phone it ways a ton, and if you drop it - the back comes off really easily causing the battery and sometimes the sim to fall out. But ill have to admit, its lasted longer than any of my other phones with out having the screen smashing itself, buttons falling off, non power-ups, etc..

Liked it to start with, hate it now. Been wondering why I keep getting phone calls from a unknown number, then realised the other day that the phone has a fake call function, which there is no way to turn off... It is activated when the volume control is held down on the side of the phone, even when the phone is locked. When I carry the phone around in my pocket I often get get about 1 to 2 fake calls a day, which is very annoying, I can tell you. Looks good and that's about it, wall papers are hard to make as they stretch across 3 screens, texting is annoying with the touch screen for many reasons and there are no free games, just demos.

bad things: - The camera is awful, it takes a long time to take the photo, really deylayed at changing the settings, and if you don't keep it still for about 7 seconds to take the photo its a blury. - It freezes quite a lot of the time, which gets really frustrating. - There would be a lot of times when you're texts don't come through, so you's have to text yourself for them to come through. But still, it's very annoying. - Dosen't have a qwerty kepboard. Good things: - Battery life is about 2 days. - Looks nice. - Internet is fairly quick. - Keeps for a long time. Overal, I would avoid this phone if there are other choices.. Hope this helped. :)

I've just read a review saying this is "the phone of choice for teens"; that it may be, with it's slide-out widgets for social networking. I got mine as a christmas gift from my 20-something daughter, who meant well. But imho this should'nt be the phone of choice for the over-50's or the technologically challenged.Those pesky little widgets that have minds of their own, sliding across the screen randomly;the over sensitive touch screen that also takes on a life of it's own,so that when you hold it close to your ear ( the better to hear you with, my dear) you inadvertently set-off a volley of beeps;the contact list that races down the screen with only the lightest touch and the keypad that hides until activated when you need to enter digits to access options on menus for,say, credit top-ups or automated bank tellers...all these features and more trigger "Senior moments" on a scale I'd hoped to keep at bay for another decade at least.L'd rate the Genio rates as a 5-o utstandingly frustrating and off the "F-word" scale. A Geriatric Genius it's not. Don't buy one for your gran.

Meh, the phone does what you need it to do, the camera is okay but doesnt have a flash or anything, the internet works well but it sometimes frustrating to work because it is touch. Sending texts is very easy but i have the problem that i dont recieve all my texts and sometimes i recieve them multiple times?!, this is very annoying! It doesnt break easily and is quite stlyish. If your someone who likes to have a nice background for the presentation of your phone it is poor because you picture stretches among the 3backgrounds of your phone, therefore only the pre-set backgrounds properly work. during a call the phone locks automatcally prolengthening anything you want to do. On the whole, this isn't a bad phone for some one with a bit of patience especially if its one of your first, but i'd recommend saving your money that little bit more to get a better phone.

Brought this phone last year and loved it at first. For the price, it has a lot of decent features. However, I quickly found myself getting bored. Considering that it was made for social networking, I didn't find the access to sites like facebook and twitter easy. I would recommend this phone to people who like phones for the basics, texting and calling with a few added extras. If like me you want more from your phone, it might be worth stretching your budget a bit further and investing in a phone with a few more features.

I found that it would not show if i had any missed calls and wouldnt tell me if i had any voicemail messages. I have had this phone for a year now and it is slow. Slower than a snail. Twitter doesnt work, facebook takes a lifetime to load and you couldnt access certain websites.

Had nothing but problems from the beginning!

Thankyou Samsung), but sadly after replacement screen, software updates etc. it still gave the same problems. Outcome - Samsung have now offered mt the Tocco Lite handest as a replacement. Can't argue with that, but would have much preferred a descent reliable phone in the 1st place without all the hassle I have had !!!!!

i bought this phone this month last year and it's good.It's got no games on it so you would get bored easily but only after a couple of months.It's got a dictionary and good features also the camera is really good and can record good quality videos.You can go on facebook and twitter easily by just one touch.I would recommend this phone for people who are looking for a good price and using it for texting, phoning and camera and video use.I bought this phone when it first came out so it was a lot expensive.It was 90.00.Now i am getting the blackberry 8520 which is 140.00 which is a good price for a blacberry.

This phone is great. I have had it for a year now and really find it easy to use and very practical. The only down fall is you cannot use it when using gloves. Apart from that I truly recommend it.

Have had this phone for a year and it annoys me like no other!! Touch screen is poor, always end up hitting it to try and get it to come to life. Crashes a lot. Very slow. Would warn against buying it, better of with a phone with buttons, go qwerty! only decent thing about it is the battery.

When I first got this phone it seemed pretty cool. However, ive had it for around 5 months now and it isn't as good as I thought it would be. It is very basic and the camera isn't great. Also mine keeps freezing every so often. My phone didn't even come with a computer cable, which isn't good if you want to download songs off the internet. If you just want a basic phone, then this is the one for you.

I have it i got it a couple of months ago in september and it freezes all of the time. The camera button doesn't work any more so i can't take photos the only reason i got a new phone was because of the camera which was pointless to be honest. I wouldn't recommend this phone.

Bought this phone for my daughter last xmas, had no problems up until a few months ago when she couldn't turn it off so she would have to have it on contant charge, then it started to get worse, now it doesn't even charge up properly. It can be on charge for several hours, says its fully charged, then goes off in a matter of minutes. Sent it away to phones 4 u, come back saying its non repairable and its down to liquid damage, probably condensation as she hasn't spilt anything on it or dropped it in water. Did buy insurance so trying to claim on it, but cover runs out on 23rd December, still waiting for claim form, reckon they're using delaying tactics! I've got the samsung tocco lite and mine won't turn on! Wondering if there's a problem with samsung phones? Anyone else with the same problem?

To be honest i was really dissapointed with this phone it had good reviews on the website but when i actually got my hands on it, it just wasnt that good, The main problem for me was that the phone was very slow! also You have to have a memory card to transfer files Via usb which was very irritating!

i've had this phone for about 1 year and after having it for about 3 months i had two lines appear across the very top of the screen, and then a about 2 months ago two more lines appeared so now i have four across the very top. &then last night i was texting someone and then two lines appeared across the very middle. so now altogether i have 6 lines. i love this phone don't get me wrong but i don't know why or how it has the lines. also it's hard to text when you have cold hands, wet/sweaty hands and it doesn't delete texts very fast either. it also comes up with words or letters i never typed in, so i wouldn't recommend it.
